Trainers' profiles

Senior Coach John Paul Maguire previously worked as a Dogs Trust Trainer for the first prison based dog training programme in the UK.  John Paul joined Dog School as a coach when the project began, before being promoted to Senior Coach.


John Paul has just finished his CertHE from Bristol University in Companion Animal Welfare and Behavioural Rehabilitation, as well as the Foundations of Canine Behaviour and Management course with Compass, and is working towards his APDT accreditation. 

Jill has for the past 7 years ran her own dog walking business, which has included the use of her own private play park for those dogs requiring a secure environment to relax and explore within.  Jill has owned and fostered many dogs over the years and currently has a little working Cocker Spaniel, "Lochie", who loves learning new tricks and having fun clicker training sessions.

Jill, in her spare time, likes to attend seminars and develop her knowledge and skillset. Jill is extremely excited to be joining the Dog School team!

Nathalie has a degree in Modern Languages and an extensive background in customer service.  Having had a lifelong passion for dogs growing up, she has devoted a lot of her spare time to furthering her own knowledge in behaviour as well as developing her practical skills.
